Rosh Hashanah Celebrations
Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and the celebration of Creation.
Many Jewish families will spend some of Rosh Hashanah at a Synagogue. This is the name given to the building where Jewish people go to worship. One of the traditions of Rosh Hashanah is to blow a big horn called a Shofar. One hundred notes are blown on the horn to create a special rhythm. Families enjoy apples dipped in honey during this time and a special bread called ‘Challah’.
To celebrate this occasion, we made homemade potato latkes and honey cake. The children also got to enjoy apples dipped in honey for their snack and learnt the traditional song ‘dip the apple in the honey’. The children also explored where all these different foods come from!
